Baby goats are adorable. It’s fun to watch them capering about, and it’s hard not to smile at their antics. And then there is yoga, which is not adorable. I find yoga to be a stern practice, there are a lot of postures to memorize, and an instructor who is there to correct your form. But if one puts these two things together, which are not intuitive things to combine, why you get Goat Yoga. Which is really a thing.
Goats are not much interested in doing exercise just to get in shape, so a little bribery is in order. This handsome young man is placing goat treats on the backs of the ladies in this particular yoga class. And the goats are climbing aboard to sample these delicious nuggets.
So the goats aren’t doing yoga at all, they are just scrounging for treats.
Here is the yoga pose downward dog (a very typical sort of movement) combined with upward goat.
Why was this event going on? Well the name of the local brewpub that sponsored this says it all.
